To the participants, organizers and guests of the Eleventh Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival
With all my heart I welcome you at the Eleventh Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival.
Over the years of its existence the Festival has become one of the leading cultural events of Moscow and has secured its place among the best military music forums of the planet. The Spasskaya Tower Festival is dear to the heart of every Muscovite. It attracts thousands of tourists and scores millions of views on TV and around the Internet. Enormous popularity of the Festival is verified by the full attendance of its evening shows as well as of triumphant performances onstage of the city’s open venues.
Beginning today and in the forthcoming days the music of kindness and friendship will fill in Moscow’s parks and gardens, create a unique atmosphere on the railway stations, complement the beauty of VDNH and add even more brilliance to Red Square.
I want to thank all the organizers and participants of the 2018 Spasskaya Tower Festival as well as our foreign friends for the wonderful celebration of arts that you are giving to the Russian capital.
I wish you vivid impressions and great mood.
Mayor of Moscow
